What you'll do
This Is It's Open Studio offers a place to create art by discovering your creative and intuitive self. We encourage participants of any skill level, from beginner to professional. A session begins with writing an Intention as an indication of the goals you seek in your artmaking. For 2 hours you enjoy making your own creations. A variety of art supplies are provided. Watercolors, pastels, paper, collage materials, we offer a lot of possibilities. The last 20 minutes involve writing a Meditative conversation with one's artwork. Next, an option to share your writing is given, if desired. We wrap up with a brief discussion about the experience. Tea, water and coffee provided.
